Corrosive Challenge #8

I've decided to join in on one challenge a week from different websites, this week I decided to join Corrosive Challenge's opportunty... which requires you to design a card where a sentiment is the main focal point. I also loved a previous challenge on Mojo Monday so decided to use that layout for my card

Unfortuantely I'm still only a newbie when it comes to Stampin' Up! gear so I haven't gotten alot of punches and I had major doubt on my hand skills of cutting out a scallop circle... but this is what I came up with... I love this sentiment, perfect for Mother Day

All Products are from Stampin' Up!
Cardstock - Whisper White, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Rose Red & Pretty in Pink
Stamp Sets - Echoes of Kindness
Ink Pads - Chocolate Chip
Ribbon - Old Olive Grosgrain

Echoes of Kindness

I really love this stamp set, and can't wait to get my markers so I can colour the flowers and steams in before stamping the image onto my cardstock.

Wasn't completely happy with this card, and from looking at it I might cut off the front of the card and mount it onto some Chocolate Chip cardstock when it arrives.

Card Buffet

Well I had a lovely group of ladies turn up for my first ever card buffet. We had a great time and everyone seems to be looking forward to the next card class, which is this Wednesday.

Here are the samples we started with, all of the kits were based on these cards however some of the girls got creative and "redesigned"

This is my favourite "redesigned" card :-)
